Tailwheel Conversion & Training
Stick and rudder flying

We provide tail wheel conversion courses and tail wheel training to those looking to add it to their license or people that just want refresher training. Many people have landing incidents in tailwheel aircraft because they have not been taught to use the proper technique. We love aerobatics and feel it is very sad when enthusiastic pilots move away from the sport because, for no fault of their own, have lost confidence due to a “little whoopsie” which has probably lost them their no-claims discount also.
